Carrot Cake Pancakes

68

I decided on what I’ll be having as my last meal on earth today…

Back story: I came home from work early with a terrible migraine caused by these flashes and floaters I occasionally get in my eyes. The only cure to said migraine is sleep. Lots and lots of sleep.

So sleep I did, after shutting every blind in the house, cranking up the AC and crawling into bed. I awoke four hours later feeling like a new woman. No flashes, no floaters, no migraine and a clear vision in my mind of the Carrot Cake Pancakes I needed to make for dinner.

Where this craving came from, I have no idea – but one bite of the sweet, buttery, carrot-cake pillows, and I knew I had found it: my choice for last meal on earth.

I started the last meal by consulting my pantry, which is conveniently stocked with a plethora of pancake mixes.

Which one would I choose (and more importantly, WHY do I have so many?!) Multigrain, Fat-Free Buttermilk,

Pumpkin or Wheat Blend?

After a good foot tap, I chose…

Fat-Free Buttermilk. Best to highlight the spicy and sweet flavors I’d be adding to it, I figured.

I measured out the dry mix, then added in the classic carrot cake flavors: cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and, of course, carrot.

After stirring in water, I poured the gorgeous, orange-hued batter onto a warm griddle, then flipped and cooked on the other side when bubbles popped up on top.

After stacking the fluffy cakes on top of one another,

I drizzled melted vanilla,

butter on top.

You have not lived until you have tried this bliss in butter form from Great Harvest!

A cascade of real,

syrup put me positively over the edge and straight into pancake paradise.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup just-add-water dry pancake mix

1/4 cup finely shredded carrot

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

pinch of nutmeg

small pinch of ground cloves

1/2 cup water (maybe less, maybe more)*

Directions:

1. Pre-heat a flat-top skillet or griddle to medium low. Combine ingredients from pancake mix to ground cloves in a bowl. Add water and stir until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. *Depending on your dry mix, you may need to add more or less water to get the batter to pancake consistency.

2. Spray the pre-heated skillet with non-stick spray and pour the batter into four, equal-sized pancakes. Flip when bubbles appear on top and continue cooking until both sides are golden brown.

3. Serve with vanilla-honey butter and real maple syrup.

I always seem to turn to comfort food when I’m feeling under the weather, and this warm, decadent, cozy meal is the epitome of the term.

This is IT. There’s no turning back. This is my choice for last meal on earth!
